Your Eggsellency Chocolate Easter Egg:
Once again those nice people at Hotel Chocolat asked if we would like to review one of their eggs. I picked ‘Your Eggsellency’ from this year’s Easter range. It was quite a struggle to pick my favourite egg, but in the end, I found the perfect one for me (and I hope, for one of you too!)
Well, it’s definitely for adults. It’s full of fresh cream truffles. I’m not actually eating it right now because sadly, tomorrow I have a gym assessment…and I am doing my best to be VERY GOOD till then. But, I’ve peeked inside. There’s a huge, gold foil wrapped egg, one side milk chocolate and one side plain chocolate. And the ‘menu’ tells me that the truffle fillings are going to be quite sublime.
How about a white port or a pink champagne truffle? Amaretto Amour if you are feeling the latin love vibes or Mojito cocktail if you want an exuberant mouthful of flavour. There’s a bison grass vodka truffle flavoured with an iconic polish vodka and a classic champagne truffle. Well, this egg has two of each type of truffle, so you won’t even have to fight over flavours (should you chose to share!)
This egg comes in its own rather exquisite egg-box. I will be keeping mine for a long time after the egg has gone to store scarfs in. Though that might just tempt me to go shopping at Hotel Chocolat!
Now, if you’d like one of these eggs for yourself this Easter (and I promise you, this isn’t one to give to the kids!) please enter the giveaway using the rafflecopter system below. You will need to post a blog comment first of all. What I’d like to know is if you were going to make an alcoholic truffle, what pairing of alcohol and chocolate would you pick? For me, I love spiced rum with milk chocolate truffles. At the risk of being out of season they just make me think of Christmas. If you can’t think of one of your own, please just let me know which of the Hotel Chocolat range you like best!
PS: I’ll update you all when I actually taste the egg:)
